Geography being a desk, field and lab-based discipline can lead to many challenges for disabled students and staff to navigate. And it is our responsibility as a Department to ensure that students and staff are not disadvantaged in undertaking their studies or day-to-day job. The Inclusive Curriculum Project set up by the Geography Discipline Network hosts a wide range of guidelines and case studies for students studying geography, earth and environmental studies.

Student Disability Services support students with a range of impairments, long and short-term conditions and difficulties. General enquiries can be addressed to disability@ucl.ac.uk or +44 (0)20 7679 0100. You can also contact the head of Student Disability Services Venitia Stoby directly. UCL Student Disability Services operate a drop-in service, Monday to Friday, check here for their opening hours and where to find them.

Resources within UCL

UCL web pages for disability equality has key information for access to work, accessibility and disability IT support, access to UCL buildings, and specific learning difficulties.

UCL recently launched ACT: Agreement of Consistent Treatment, a tool to record the reasonable adjustments and flexible working arrangements agreed between an employee and their line manager.  Some employees may feel anxious raising requests for reasonable adjustments with their managers – it is hoped the ACT will ease that anxiety as it is evidence of UCL’s commitment to equality and inclusion.  Likewise some managers may be anxious discussing issues that they feel are personal to the employee.  The ACT provides a template to facilitate such discussions
